Alzheimer's disease Pre-Conference Seminar

May 28-29, 2002
NASAR SAR 2002 Charlotte, NC

 

The seminar offers the participant an unique opportunity to learn about Alzheimer's disease, wandering, and the correct life-saving actions to take when a subject with Alzheimer's disease or related dementia disappears.  The training is aimed at law enforcement personnel with supervisory responsibilities and search and rescue personnel who may be responsible for the initial response and subsequent search. Field personnel will also gain important insight into the nature of Alzheimer's and wandering. The course covers the nature of Alzheimer's disease, the scope of the wandering problem, search management incident crucials, characteristics of lost Alzheimer's subjects, initial report collection and action, initial search strategy, reflex tasking of SAR resources, Urban search considerations, and several case studies. Students will be provided with an instructor's manual, PowerPoint presentation CD (retail $100) and other relevant documents.  The course will be instructed by Robert J. Koester, a recognized leader in Alzheimer's searches.

The class is limited to 25 students due to the interactive nature of the presentation and case studies.  Be sure to register as soon as possible.  $195 for NASAR members and $225 for non-NASAR members.
